Ewan Birney talks about developing programs that look at DNA sequence.
Craig Venter, leader of the private effort at Celera Genomics, speaks about his company's reliance on the public data for reassembly of the Celera sequence.
Ewan Birney talks about processing sequencing data.
Ewan Birney talks about finding genes.
For the first draft of the genome sequence, both teams were working to identify the number of human genes. Here, Ewan Birney, a "numbers man" from the public genome project, explains how genes can be recognized and the data from the genome project used.
Craig Venter speaks about the public sector's reaction to his plans to sequence the genome at a private company, Celera Genomics.
Craig Venter, the leader of the private genome effort, talks about the "whole genome shotgun" technique that was used by Celera Genomics to sequence the human genome.
Craig Venter and Francis Collins represent the commercial and the federally-funded efforts of the Human Genome Project.
